Every season is a great season for showing off your beautiful home. Family and friends will gather in your beautiful kitchen, eat at that spectacular dining room table that you bought, specifically for this spot.
Formulating what you want that floating kitchen to look like from all angles, is a key element to form and function. Take for instance that beautiful waterfall granite countertop on the full functioning island. A beautifully designed piece that can be taken up a notch by adding open shelving, where a crystal decanter and glasses can add a stunning accent.
The dining room table is sometimes too big, or sometimes too small. Take a tip from restaurants, you can design a smaller table for when it is just the two of you…then add additional tables units that expand the dining space to accommodate a crowd.
We can look at the contemporary tables that are out there, some are Danish designs where the table goes from a 7-foot version, then with the click of the remote, leaves extend it out to 8 and 10 feet. There are prime examples of these in design magazines.
Look at enticing elements that can complement that gorgeous view out your windows. A combination of walnut and stainless steel, glass and rose gold stainless, marble and glass…the creativity levels are endless.
I have a customer that I am working with right now, who contacted me to do a dry bar in her living room area. She saw the beautiful wall of stone I worked with at holiday time, and wanted something that would make a great statement. She has very contemporary artwork, with specific colors. We found a wonderful slab that will handsomely work with her pieces. We had electric drawn so she can have a dynamic chandelier drop down and light up her wall of stone.
We will utilize the left over cut for her dining room table top. We will leave the edges of the stone, cut but polished, and continue the drama to the other side of the room.
A challenge came up with extra guest space, which she occasionally needs when she entertains late into the night. A fabulous contemporary cabinet, under her big screen T.V. folds out to a sleeper when needed, but looks fabulous when company sits to enjoy movies.
